Our hearts are broken.................

It was such a good day and then around 7pm tonight, our precious little Sierra's heart stopped. Her halo brace was immediately removed, CPR given, an emergency tracheotomy was inserted. They worked hard on her, but she didn't make it. She died. The family is devestated, so unexpected, so very sad. So many tears. I feel so bad for her parents, my stepson and his xwife. How do you bury your child? It's just not right.

Hi Pat, thank you so much. Yes, it is very heartbreaking.

Tonight was the viewing...lots of tears...hard...but good too. Sierra looked so pretty, but so very hard seeing a child like that. What really tore me up was looking at the many photos they had there from her birth through the 11 years of her childhood. That was hard!

We're all doing okay though.

Thank you Gail and Amy. We're doing okay, just very tired. Tomorrow is the viewing and Tuesday is the funeral, two hard days. We'll get through it, though, and be okay. There's the wave of tears that come and go as you'd expect, but we're really okay. John's son is doing okay, too, as he has been surrounded by family. The next two days will be very hard on him though. Even though it's a sad time, it's good being together.
